Men who firebombed home to be sentenced this month

THE case of three men who have pleaded guilty to firebombing a Maryborough house has been adjourned.

William George Grimes, 24, Xaen Lock, 23, and Michael James Taylor, 21, will be sentenced in the district court for throwing Molotov cocktails at the home, breaking in and threatening a man with a knife in February.

Mr Lock's legal representative said new evidence suggested he was suffering from a mental health condition.

He said Mr Lock had been seeing a psychiatrist for some time but the man's legal team was not aware of his condition until recently.

The three have been remanded in custody until their next appearance on September 30.

A fourth accused, Luke Francis Whalley, 24, is on bail and did not appear in court. He will go to trial next month after pleading not guilty to the same charges.
